New Delhi: The cases of Omicron variants are increasing rapidly in the country. This variant has so far spread in 23 states and union territories. Experts believe about Omicron that this new variant may not be too dangerous, but it spreads very fast.
- This is how Delta affected
When the second wave of Corona i.e. Delta variant wreaked havoc in the country, many people lost their lives. Experts claimed that the Delta variant is affecting people’s lungs the most. In such a situation, when another variant i.e. Omicron has been introduced in the country, then questions are being raised in the minds of people that which part of the body does this new variant target.
- How does Omicron work?
Experts say, ‘In the case of most of the Omicrons that have come up so far, diseases of a very mild nature are coming to the fore. Patches have been seen in the lungs in many cases, but no major damage is being done right now, this is preliminary data, we will have to wait more to see if there are a large number of cases, then whether all are of mild nature. Will be In Delta also, such serious disease was not seen in the beginning, later when the number of cases increased, then the cases of serious nature emerged more.
- Who is Omicron affecting the most?
Experts said, ‘This variant is affecting every age group. Let us tell you that Omicron is also affecting children in South Africa, but after assessing the initial data, it was found that all the serious diseases and deaths that have happened so far have been seen only in unvaccinated people. If you are vaccinated, you may be able to infect this variant, but there will be no more serious disease, you probably will not go to the ICU and the chances of death will be negligible. That’s why the vaccine is the most powerful weapon.
- Is oxygen even needed?
When the second wave of corona came in the country, how did people face the problem of low oxygen. On how important role oxygen will play this time, the doctor says, ‘It has happened in very few cases, in the first two weeks it was being said that it is equal to zero and no one had died. Then there was the first death report from England, now the news of death is coming from other places. In all the cases reported in our country, a very small number of low oxygen levels or deaths have been reported. Most of the cases are mild, which are being managed at home, hospital admissions are also being done, then people are coming home only after going for a couple of days.
